broadening the energy base for the navy. how is that going? and how do you manage that? >> first it is going very well. to answer the first question it is fuel and energy is a military vulnerability particularly the way we are doing it today. i'm very glad that america is producing more oil and gas. but even if we produce all that we can use, there are two overriding factors. number one oil and gas are global commodities and the price is set globally. so, you get some instability somewhere, you get somebody threatening to close a strait somewhere, you get anything, when the price of oil went up $10 with syria syria is not a major producer but it sis the security premium that traders place on oil regardless of where it is coming from. every time the price of oil goes up a dollar a barrel it costs the navy and manner corps an additional $30 million. in 2011 and 2012 the navy was presented with an additional unbudgeted $2 billion in fall costs. well there are not many places to go get that sort of money. you can take it out fof operations. so you steam less, fly less, or if

. howard miner was my father. he was one of the navy black cats, it was a group of navy military guys that fought in the south pacific during world war ii, and they flew in these lumbering planes called pbys or catalinas. and the black cats were distinctive in that the planes were not terribly well suited for, almost obsolete, as a matter of fact, and not well suited for combat. they weren't well armed and were not particularly elusive, very slow. and so they had to come up with ways to protect themselves from attacking aircraft, and so that was what the black cats were, they were kind of an ingenius bunch that figured out ways of taking what is normally the most difficult part for a plane, the most hazardous part for flying, and that's flying at night and using it to their advantage. initially, their roles were more patrol and search and light harassment sort of activities. as time wore on, they became more adept at flying at night. the planes were painted black, didn't use any lights, had flame arresters on their engine, and so as they became to become more or less invisible at nigh
of europe, and president said yes, sir, and took them out, put them on the back of our navy, and gave the navy no additional asset to do that. now he is cutting asset that navy has, i don't think that the president right now has the credibility necessary to back up many of his statements. lou: and do you have a view as to what likely putin will do in ukraine? >> lou, one thing that we're always afraid of, when you see the vacuums then you know, president putin may try t to -- exhibit some of his muscle, a react on world react, not u.s. reacted we're hoping he will be deliberate and not do, that let the ukrainian people work this out forever themselves, no matter how difficult that work out might be. lou: i was to turn to the issue of defense spending, and budget cuts, that are being insisted upon our military, and the pentagon. you are a champion of our military. you are more concerned than most on capitol hill. about national security, day in and day out. what is your judgment of the signifance, impact and result of think about cuts that pentagon now faces? >> shute she mos absolute
've done it without tanks, without firing a single shot. ukraine's navy is either under russian guard or gone. its army now surrounded by moscow's men. russian soldiers on the march in ukraine. this unit is taking up positions outside a ukrainian army base. the objective? to take it from troops who were once their comrades in the soviet army. but times and loyalties have changed. the russians have come prepared for a fight. behind the gate, the ukrainian troops are dressed for combat but look bewildered. and no wonder. their country has been invaded, their homeland, crimea, taken over. two armys in a tense standoff. it's been decades since we've seen as clear a russian takeover in eastern europe as this one. and so far there is no sign whatsoever that the ukrainian soldiers behind that gate are going to put up a fight. the russians ordered them to lay down their weapons or there'd be trouble. minutes later, the ukrainian armor was gone, the gate manned by men carrying knives who looked just as anxious about the enemy facing them. the ukrainian base, one of crimea's biggest, is now sur
of examples, the u.s. navy says that china is preparing for a short and sharp war against japan over disputed territories. iran is to find decoration or the future of its nuclear weapons program. syria is being torn asunder by the regime of assad who is using incredible weaponry against his cell in population and the civil war there. we can see that human rights are threatened across the middle east into our own neighborhood in venezuela. and in the context of these challenges which range from traditional allies to security of partners and countries with our family with, to send the persons whose aspirations we should support, this is a moment where an uncertain trumpet will tackle resoundingly throughout the world. so in my view the president should use this opportunity both to pursue the specific measures of the crisis ukraine demands that he should be conscious he speaking to three audiences, and to speak to those audiences in describing that the united states will punish a question, stand with allies and support the aspirations of people globally for freedom. and will stick to those three

, the navy, which may have abandoned kiev. ian in the capital and joins me from there. ian, the navy, they seem to have sided with the russians. >> reporter: debra, this has been a lot of drama in kiev trying to figure out exactly what is going on. what we heard initially was that the ukrainian naval chief said he was defecting to the republic of crimea. this would be a big blow to the russian navy. later we found out from a member of parliament here in kiev that, in fact, he was dismissed from his position before he defected to the -- to crimea. what we're hearing from the parliamentarian, he ordered troops to step down alertness level limiting their capabilities. the troops realizing what was going on informed the defense minister. he investigated the situation and relieved the navy chief of his command. then the navy chief then defected over to the quote, unquote, republic of crimea, what it's been called now. before that happened a new naval chief was put in place. this is what we're hearing from the parliament. it's hard to tell who exactly is telling us the truth at this moment
to the services, and their operations maintenance as well, the navy, for example, is pursuing aggressive cost savings initiatives. achieving better pricing initiatives to maximize the possible size of their ship inventory. if these efforts generate fewer savings than planned in our budget, there will be little choice but to further reduce the size of the navy's fleet. the various reviews and resulting proposals of recent years have been criticized as budget euros -- budget drills. when confronted with major spending cuts, especially on the scale and schedule of sequestration, there is no avoiding the imperative to seek savings. i would suggest that the notion of crafting a strategy totally devoid of risk and totally diss encumbered from resources is a logical fallacy and historical fiction. a relevant strategy is not a set of goals and preferences put together on the assumption that the money will just follow. a symbioticuires relationship between resources, outcomes, and courses of action. in the real world, our military is provided with a certain level of funding from the as was the case in

insurgents killed 30 member servicemen including 17 navy s.e.a.l.s and making it the largest single day loss of life in naval special warfare history. the largest single day during the events that unfolded that night are commonly referred to as extortion 1-7, which is the call sign for the helicopter transporting the special operations personnel. we are here today at the request of many of the families of the fallen heros aboard extortion 1-7 to obtain answers to their questions, where answers can be found. this hearing also serves to honor the 30 american servicemen aboard extortion 1-7 and their families. i've traveled to afghanistan numerous times and visited with the servicemen and women there and have nothing but the greatest admiration and respect for those serving our country. over the course of many months the committees have had open and ongoing dialogue with many of the families and servicemen -- families of the servicemen aboard the extortion 1-7. in an effort to get answers to outstanding questions, some concerning the operations, others regarding postmortem events, we have asked
an u unannounced test, basically making sure that the army, the navy, and the air force can react to any perceived threats as quickly as they should be able to. now they did say that the black sea fleet, which is based in crimea in ukraine is being adequately protected, and the fleet is being bumped up a bit, which is probably what you would expect for any country with overseas military assets near a country going through a revolution at the moment. although they have said that the military drills have nothing to do with what is going on in ukraine, there are probably people who are very high up in the defense ministry and russian government as well who are thinking that reminding russia's neighbors and it's rivals of russian military might at a time when it's influence in central and eastern europe has taken a big dent recently is certainly no bad to do from a russian geopolitical perspective. >> getlet's go to tim friend who has the latest from kiev. we understand that it's a novel way of unveiling the new cabinet. what is happening behind you. >> reporter: the politician who is

stealth fighter. their navy can't get out of ports. it it really is the gang that couldn't shoot straight. we have still a very strong military. we ought to leverage that asymmetry. is that a threat or actually a follow-through? there are two things there. one is a threat to sort of scare them because they have a pathetic military and the other one is to actually commit. >> i think we can commit as a demonstration as an example. we have a perfect right to put ships in the black sea. let's put some ships in the black sea. poland is one of the best maneuver areas in central europe. the u.s. military, the u.s. army, maybe even the marine corps ought to move into poland to do maneuvers, perhaps stay a while. we should move tier 1 and tier 2 special forces into the ukraine if the ukraine asks for our support so we can train their troops. remember october '73 when we kept israel from collapsing by flying in high tech gear, high tech weapons. we could do that in the ukraine. that is not going to start a war but tell putin we are serious. >> why do we do that? >> we are doing it because there sho
. for sure i cannot imagine helping this situation by putting the u.s. navy into the black sea. >> nick byrnes, welcome back. let me ask you, the general gave it over to you. how do you handicap the odds at this point, that the russian troops will go into the eastern part of ukraine? look, you guys are the experts, i'm not. but it seems to me, if russian troops go into the ukraine, that is going to prolong and make this whole story uglier with much deeper political and financial implications. >> larry, i think what putin is trying to do here, he's trying to intimidate and coerce this new embattled government in kiev to stay in line, to stay in the russian orbit, not to have an association with the european union. it's very unlikely he's going to give up the crimea because angela merkel or someone else asks him to. the big question, will he limit himself to that or respond to the inevitable appeal from leaders from eastern cities in ukraine to rescue those ethnic russians. but there's probably a reason he may not do that in the short term it's a lot to digest. about 65% of the people in
has been the pride of the russian navy since peter the great founded it. it is the flagship literally so to speak of the russian navy. it is a point of pride to have is based there. it's not necessary military tayloilyfor them. i think it would be a very severe blow to russian pride to have to do that. >> russia is determined to maintain it's historic influence on ukraine. it was russia t that joined ukraine part of the soviet union. the ussr broke up in 1991 clearing the way for ukraine to gain independence while still seeking elusive national unity. >> joining us now with more from washington, d.c. is james, deputy director of the american institute in the ukraine. james, as we speak the united nations security council is having an emergency meeting on the ukrainian crisis. what do you expect the security council to do next? >> nothing much, of course, the russians have a veto in the security council. whether the chinese will support them or abstain, i don't see any prospect for resolution that would have the unanimous suppot of the members or result in any action regarding ukraine

allegiance to russian troops. >> flagships of the ukrainian navy. their loyalty is no longer, now that the newly appointed navy chief has defected. swear allegiance to the people of the autonomous republic of crimea. >> the ukrainian military has about 140,000 men, including 60,000 conscripts. in theory the ukraine could mobilize one million, but they say that their equipment is getting old in that the army is sorely lacking in resources. troops, vladimir putin called for authorization to use the armed forces in ukraine until the normalization of the political situation in the country. the russian army has taken control of the entire region, they could also be sending soldiers into other parts of the ukraine. 100 50,000 troops have amassed on the border. situation that could change or medically at any moment. the first shot fired at signal the beginning of the civil war or war between russia and ukraine, or both. in other words, it is an extremely serious situation. >> ukraine shares its border with four european union countries, meaning all 28 member states could become directly
budget there will be little choice but to further reduce the size of the navy's fleet. finally i also know the various reviews and resulting proposals of recent years have been criticized as budget drills, math, not strategy and when confronted with major spending cuts, especially on the scale and schedule of sequestration, there's no avoiding the imperative to seek savings and fast. yet, i would suggest that the notion of crafting a strategy totally destroyed of risk and totally disencumbered from resources is a logical fallacy and historical fiction. for startersing, a relevant strategy is not a set of goals and preferences put together on the assumption and hope that the money would just follow. in reality, strategy requires a symbiotic relationship between resources, outcomes and courses of action. in the real world, our military is provided with a certain level of funding as was the case in each of america's major conflicts and during the riskiest periods of the cold war as well. as analysts and yes, strategists, we do an assessment what this will buy and what the options are. th
to rachet up their pressure. if indeed it's true that they have delivered an ult matum to 2 navy warships to the ukrainian. >> nobody is shooting at anybody, but if it came to that, the russian military is many times the sides of the ukrainian one. isn't it? >> i think it's 140,000. i am not sure my math is good enough. but it's over 800,000 from the russian military. i think the amount of money that the two militaries spend, that sort of number of troops is even more than that. so, no, i don't think anybody believes that ukraine can take on the russian navy, military at all. the ukrainian government hasn't said that or wanted to do that. so that's why you see them almost pleading with the united states, with the u.n., with europe, to really put pressure diplomatically and diplomeconom. there is not a lot this government has frankly. that's why you hear president obama come out so forcefully on friday afternoon, once again say the same thing, russia is on the wrong side of history today. lots of conference calls, reporters state, lots of economic talk about sanctions. but so far, presiden
